We are excited to be offering authentically constructed and finished palm straw hats. These hats will wear like iron and stand the test of time! Palm straw hats have been imported and used in the United States since at least the 18th century. Our hats are hand constructed of South American palm leaves and feature a real, 100% silk crown ribbon and hand sewn leather sweatband. These are details you don't see on many lesser quality reproductions. This specific style hat has a rounded crown and is medium brimmed and is made from lighter colored palm.
